Readers are welcome to share their comments, email: email@example.com (300-words or fewer preferred). Many letters to the Editor refer to past correspondence, available in our archives.
In the last sentence of my letter (06/07/07 ID) I wrote: "than none would be too many" by mistake. I meant to say: "that none would be too many." My apologies to all ID readers for the typo. This, of course, has nothing to do with the fact that "CIR" is a terrible bill which can only get worse with amendments. The politicians who are trying to palm it off as any kind of an improvement to an immigration system badly in need of compassion and realism toward immigrants of all skill and educational levels are simply deluding themselves. As immigration advocates, should we sit back silently while this atrocious bill, which would destroy the foundations of our immigration system as we know it and effectively put an end our history as a nation of immigrants, is foisted on us from above? The public and the media may not know any better. But as immigration lawyers, we have a responsibility to speak out.
Roger Algase, Esq.
New York, NY
I was outraged to read Roger Algase's recent letter to the Editor (06/07/07 ID) concerning the perceived 'bias' against Latino immigrants 'inherent' in the proposed point system. While I agree that the system places a greater burden on those with lower fluency in English or those in the lesser-skilled categories, to extrapolate from this a bias toward Latinos is, I would respectfully submit, completely without merit. With no disrespect meant to Latinos, who have contributed a great deal to the rich and varied fabric of this nation, I think it is inappropriate and dangerous to ascribe racial intolerance to those who support a system that favors language fluency, education and skills. To imply otherwise is to insult the very people whom the author seeks to defend.
Christine Flowers, Esq.
Lou Dobbs always complaints about job outsourcing, immigrants taking "American jobs" and bla bla bla. And many so called "compassionate conservatives" agree with him. Now, these folks must give us ideas of how to create a prosper, secured, competitive USA while we can completely stop businesses "sending jobs" overseas, protect high Americans wages and close the border and also make foreigners to worship our "mighty" strong US dollar. Lou Dobbs et al. must stop dreaming about his protectionist stand will save American jobs. Why not punishing those who shop imports ? or those who use robots, computers, automated machines and software, vending machines for stealing jobs from Americans ? This anti immigrants hysteria is getting ridiculous, many townships are proposing that property owners must be immigration agents as well by asking the renters' legal papers, what next ? Pizzerias and Chinese food joints need to see ones' greencard before serving their paying customers ? It's easy to be a crybaby, many Americans can do Lou Dobb's job for less including me, if my job just complaint and complaint day and night. Please folks get a life a bit, and face it, competition is anywhere, there's nothing such as take it for granted "American jobs". Consumers have right to shop whatever best deals they can find anywhere globally and businesses can invest and outsource to anywhere they like and find they're competitive and attractive markets and places.
